However, Angel has life changing news for Rita, she’s going to marry Charlie’s father. Free of her obligations, Rita accepts the job and joins the circus.
Neve Garmancelli, circus owner, has spent the twenty years since her father’s death working year round, all hours just to keep the circus afloat. She gave up her own career as a top notch trapeze artist to do this. She leads a very lonely existence. After her uncle died, she found herself unable to manage the circus accounts and gave her brother, Lorenzo, the task of finding an accountant.
When Rita and Neve meet, there is no love lost between them. But as time passes, the two women form a tentative friendship. When Rita begins to delve into the accounts, she finds evidence of fraud and family betrayal. She has to impart this knowledge to Neve, knowing that it will cause her heart break and distress.
Will Neve trust Rita enough to accept her findings? What will happen to the circus now? Adding into this is the turmoil Rita is feeling regarding her growing attraction towards Neve. Rita knows that Neve is a lesbian, but she has never felt attracted to a woman before. What is happening to her? Neve herself is struggling with her own feelings towards the straight, untouchable Rita. What if anything, will happen between Rita and Neve?
As with all books I’ve read by J.M Dragon, I was into the story from the first page. The storyline in this book certainly had me hooked, I found it very hard to put the book down. The writing as always is excellent. The interaction between Rita and Neve made me want to read much more about them. The setting for the story is brilliant. All the fun of behind the scenes of the circus and much more. Plus the added bonus of the supporting cast of characters. All very believable. I eagerly look forward to more from J.M Dragon.
